The Silverlake Jubilee opened yesterday in the glare of bright sunshine and closed with cool breezes blowing in the twilight. Two stages on either end of the festival grounds played at a carefully adjusted volume so the music didn’t collide. The event was crowded enough that you often had to wind your way through, but it was not the inescapable crush of the Sunset Junction. In fact, it’s it was difficult not to compare the event to the much-maligned Junction.

The Jubilee, however, is actually more reminiscent of the Hollywood Farmers Market, with plenty of people, but no pushing and shoving. Perhaps the mellow vibe was due to the fact that the drinking is limited to fenced-in “beer gardens”.
